(Editor’s note) Originally this version was available for the American market, while in Europe a version less sour was available; as of today, only this version of Sour is produced, so if you got a recent vintage you had this one.
The Sour has a sticker to differenciate it from the sticker-less Barriquée Mild, which has not been inoculated with lactobacillus bacteria.

75cL bottle, thanks Marc, the Alpha King! Brown color, some head but not a bunch. The aroma is really tremendous, sweet and sour like Rodenback, plenty of acetic. The flavor is pretty sour, not too sweet. The oak is pretty pronounced. It does get sweeter as it warms and probably tastes even better. Pretty drinkable actually. Great beer if you are into bacteria! And I definitely am!

bottle 0048, batch #8. Pours a nice foamy red. Nose is of vinegar, cherries, cranberries, and horsebanket as well as a thin metallic note in the background. Flavors of sour cherries and must are very pleasant. Palate is somewhat thin, but smooth and enjoyable. A very pleasant suprise tasted at the hopleaf.

750ml bottles (2 different vintages! this review is for the fresh version) thanks to geuzelover Clearish dark-brown mahogany with bubbly head leaving good lace. Some sweet fruity and bubblegum nose. Tart, brown sugar fruitiness, mild horseblanket, some cherry, apple, grape maybe. More tart than funk, but much more funky than something like Duchesse.

Awesome. Pours a brownish rust color with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma is sour, apple, oak, and "aged" funk. Taste is sour, apple, raisin, rum, and other beer aroma similar to the ones found in the "brett" varieties. Palate: plenty of carbonation adds to the complexity and bitterness. Finishes dry and aromatic, nice!

Excited for this one. 2011 batch #14. Poured into my Ommegang tulip-esque glass with a mahogany clear pour. The nose I just what I was expecting - old wood, funk, and a touch of basalmic vinegar. The flavor is initially sour, followed a bit of undesirable graininess. The finish is smooth and woody. Nice beer.

Tasted from the bottle, on 08/02/2013. Pours copper/light brown, perfectly clear, with just a tiny off-white head. Aroma is quite intense, tartness dominates, accompanied with sour berries, raspberries as well, a hint of grapes skin in the end. Taste is also tart upfront, but not acetic, then come wild funky notes, mixed with dry wine and grape juice. After warming up raspberries show up, as well as a bit of oaky vanilla character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, medium-light carbonated. Aftertaste is of funk&sourness, with a faint warming alcohol sensation at the back. Overall, a well balanced, not too sour indeed, pretty drinkable and rather tasty beer. Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 This is a world class Flemish Sour Ale. I first tried Duchess de Bourgeone, then Rodenbach. When i got my hands on this bottle it blew them away. The color alone says it all. The aroma was of unripened cherries and vinegar. The frothy head added a nice creamyness to this sour treat. The oak-aging adds a smoothness which mellows out the tartness. A perfect PUCKER! 100% PERFECT!!!

On bottle 75cl. The acid and fruity flavours left me a very good memory in mind. Dark red colour, carbonated enough, medium level tartness body. So good.

15-01-11 Bouteille 750ml batch 2007: Belle apparence entre le vin rosée et le vin rouge. Très légère effervescence et petite mousse blanche qui reste. Arômes s’apparentant a ceux d’une gueuze (ce qui explique ma cote basse), avec des notes très vineuses de fruits rouge et de barrique. Moyennement sucrée (on s’en aperçoit suite au dépot de sucre sur les lèvres), avec une petite amertume et des notes très surette, mais beaucoup plus balancée que la Rodenbach Grand Cru. Boisée, corps de léger a moyen, se boit très facilement et serait parfait pour une chaude journée d’été. Sa texture est plutôt vineuse et est asser carbonisée. La finale est douce et nous rappel un léger vin rouge avec des notes surette.
